Some of My Friends Read Comics 081 – Infinity War (the Comic)

somfrc081

Infinity War “The Comic” is a little different from Infinity War “The Movie.”

There are lots of evil doppelgangers, Adam Warlock is the most important character, and the infinity gems aren’t working together (due to a previously established court ruling).

Galactus also shows up long enough to make a real boneheaded move. Nice going, Galactus.

Does it count as a spoiler if it’s in the title? Jim Starlin don’t care, he does what he wants.

He and Marvel changed up their regular comic book format with The Death of Captain Marvel in 1982, the beginning of a line of original graphic novels intended to be richer stories for a more mature audience and published like traditional books.

But what kills him?!?!?! Sorry, no spoilers.

We’re heading back out to space!

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps building towards Infinity War, we’re doing the same with all of Jim Starlin’s Infinity books and this time it’s the Infinity Gauntlet, a 6-issue miniseries and one of Marvel’s best event comics of all time.

Spoiler Alert: Thanos kills everybody.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 023 – Warlock by Jim Starlin


Before we recorded our Thanos episode a couple months back, we knew we were gonna eventually head back to outer space to cover the Infinity Guantlet.

But we had so much fun reading Thanos Quest and were so impressed with the writing and art of Jim Starlin that we decided to head back even sooner!

This time we took a look at Adam Warlock, a character that Vince and Kia knew absolutely NOTHING about, other than that he appeared in the background of Guardians of the Galaxy and was eventually gonna be pretty important.

Luckily, Chris is here as usual to clarify exactly what the heck is going on. Join us as we read Strange Tales 178-181 and Warlock 9-11!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 019 – Thanos Quest

somfrc019

Thanos! He’s a big purple dude that keeps showing up in the Marvel movies… but why is everyone always freaking out about him?

Since he’s gonna be the big bad in the next Avengers movie, we figured we’d get some backstory by reading the 1990 comics where he became a major player. And it all started with his resurrection in Silver Surver 34-38, followed by his hunt for the Infinity Gems in Thanos Quest 1-2.

Writer Jim Starlin takes us into the world of Marvel’s cosmic galaxy that he helped form, and artist Ron Lim gives us some breath-taking psychedelic images.

What a team!
